K&N Cabin Air Filter VF2045

The K&N VF2045 Cabin Air Filter helps stop odors and restores interior air quality

In the world of luxury cars, Lexus is often favored by practical people. They convey a sense of inherent quality, which gives you the confidence to spend the money since "you know it'll last". Aside from this "Toyota-ness", there are many other reasons to love a Lexus, including the effortless performance, the Egyptian pyramid build quality, and the long list of luxury accouterments. One of these pampering features is the cabin filtration system, which is designed to filter out the dust, dirt, odors, and allergens that happen to be swirling around your car. This is a surprisingly important part of the luxury experience, and if you ignore changing the cabin air filter regularly, your Lexus will start to smell a little like the inside of an Egyptian pyramid too.

Thanks to its reusable synthetic material, the K&N VF2045 Cabin Air Filter is warrantied for 10-years or 100,000 miles

The OEM Lexus cabin air filter is made from a thick folded paper that keeps airborne contaminants from ever reaching the air vents. When the heated/cooled air reaches the filter, any dirt that it contains will come to rest on the filter's surface. The problem with this design, is that dirt will eventually buildup and clog the filter, significantly reducing the amount of air that can flow through it. Once this happens, those contaminants will start blending with the air, giving it a stale, musty smell. Your allergies may also get worse, as the accumulated pollen starts to invade the cabin air. To keep all of that from happening, you need to change that (expensive) Lexus cabin filter often. Or you could improve both the HVAC system efficiency and the air quality, by installing a reusable K&N VF2045 cabin air filter.

Unlike that OE cabin air filter found in the 2001-2005 Lexus GS300, 2001-2005 Lexus GS430, 2001-2006 Lexus LS430, and 2002-2010 Lexus SC430, the K&N VF2045 cabin air filter is made from a special synthetic material that traps dirt particles deep inside a web of fibers, instead of on the surface. The filter also has an electrostatic charge to keep the contaminants in place, which allows air to continue to flow through as the dirt builds up. This filter media is more effective at removing dirt, dust, pollen, mold, spores, fungus, mildew, bacteria, germs, and other allergens. Then you simply clean your K&N cabin filter using the K&N Cabin Air Filter Refresh Kit.

Thanks to its innovative design and rugged build quality, the K&N VF2045 cabin air filter will likely be the last cabin filter that you need to buy. It's also covered by the K&N 10-year/100,000 Mile Limited Warranty, which you certainly don't get from a disposable filter. In addition to improving the performance of your climate control system, K&N has an entire range of engine air filters that can increase the performance of your entire vehicle, To find out more, enter your specific year/make/model into the Search by Vehicle Tool.
